    I ran across a website sometime ago that advertised an AR rifle chambered in .30-06, as well as a plethora of other major calibers includin .300 winmag, and, 270 win. . Does anyone know who the manufacturer is and can you provide a link if possible?

    I believe I had a web site at one time but don't remember how I found it.

    I like the idea. Wouldn't mind having one.

    Sure, it's Cobb Manufacturing. They make the excellent FA50 "fast action" straight pull .50 BMG rifle, as well as the "MCR" (for "multi caliber rifle") series of AR's. The Cobb website is here: http://www.cobb50.com/

    A dealer that usually has Cobb rifles in stock is C3 Sports. Their website is http://www.c3sport.com

    The Cobb rifle is an special ediiton aniversary rifle, only 100 produced and chambered only in .30-06. The rifle Im talking about was chambered also in pretty much all common big game cartridges and was not a special edition. Its not the Cobb. Gosh I wish I could remember who put it out. This is driving me absolutely NUUUUUUTSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

    The only rifle that I have ever heard of that is like what you mentioned is the Cobb rifle. Farther down on Cobb's website they have other regular production guns that can be chambered in multiple calibers. The only other rifle like this that I have heard of is MGI's, but they are only chambered in 7.62x39 and 5.56x45.

    Not true. Cobb's platform is the patented "MCR" series, which stands for "multi caliber rifle." It comes in four sizes -- MCR 100, MCR 200, MCR 300 and MCR 400. The MCR 400 is the largest, and is available in chamberings all the way up to .338 Lapua Magnum (whoa!). By contrast, the MCR 100 is the smallest, and is typical AR size. The MCR 100 comes in chamberings from .45ACP and 5.56x45. The MCR 300 can be chambered for the .30-06 and similar length cartridges. Once you have an MCR, you can change calibers within a series simply by changing the barrel and bolt.

    Also, while Cobb did make a special run of 100 MCR 300 anniversary models in .30-06, that was just a special edition. The non-anniversary MCR 300 has been and is available in .30-06 and a host of other chamberings.

    That must be the one then. I guess I was thrown off by the aniversary edition; they advertised that one as being a limited run rifle. I did find the .30-06 rifle right below it on the MCR page. Thanks

    The magazines don't change with a caliber conversion?
